From French Grey Photography... This lavish and styled destination wedding featured two ceremonies in Sicily with 60 guests. The Bride was brought to the first ceremony in a vintage baby blue Rolls Royce that drove right up to the steps of the church featured in the Godfather movies. After the ceremony, the red carpet led guests to a celebratory walk around the ancient town with a traditional Sicilian band.

The second ceremony was a romantic and intimate Jewish blessing on the beach of Belmond Villa Sant’Andrea with a backdrop of boats lazily anchored in the Ionian Sea. Following the beach ceremony, guests enjoyed an outdoor cocktail reception in an English garden, followed by dinner at a long imperial table on the hotel's terrace. After dinner, there was dancing and a huge surprise fireworks display over the water.

Bespoke stationery with a custom monogramming by Abigail Warner streamlined everything throughout the wedding from the invitations to the photo booth backdrop.

The Bride wore Jenny Packham for the beach ceremony and a custom gown by Fyodor Atelier for the church ceremony. The Bride also wore two bespoke headpieces from Jannie Baltzer, shoes from Emmy Shoes London and Manolo Blahnik. The flower girl also wore a separate dress for each ceremony with matching fresh flower headpieces.

The Bride and Groom commissioned an artist to create a hand-painted Art Nouveau-inspired Ketubah by Jacqueline Kahane Freedman that took over 10 months to create. Seven bridesmaids wore an off-the-shoulder Alvina Valenta dress in antique rose and groomsmen wore blue suits with navy bow ties. As a gift from the Bride, each bridesmaid wore a unique and authentic Art Nouveau cameo brooch on the waist-high bow of her bridesmaid dress.
